Product Description

Review

"The best introduction to transaction processing systems I have ever read."
—K.Torp, ACM Computing Reviews, November 1997 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Author

For Universities too!
As the title says, the book is "For The Systems Professional". But it has been used successfully in university courses too. My lecture notes are freely available on request. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
This book is a very good introduction to transaction processing. It did a wonderful job of explaining concepts, and gave concise, clear examples. I would recommend this book as a primary text for anyone wanting to get an overview of the main TP ideas, with the Gray & Reuter book as a supplemental text. The book is very readable, too.

Format: Paperback
An excellent general introduction into the field. Probably the best introductory book in the field.
5 star content - but I would agree with the reviewer that said "just for some reason I couldn't stop falling asleep while reading it!". The presentation is rather too dry and could do with being spiced up. (Hence only 4 stars)

Format: Paperback
If you're looking for a smaller & cheaper tome than Gray & Reuter's TP bible, look no further. This book explains stuff in good detail... just for some reason I couldn't stop falling asleep while reading it! :)
If you want to start designing TP monitors or tweaking them, read Gray/Reuter.

Format: Paperback
Good basic text about transaction processing. Much easier to read than Gray/Reuter or Weikum/Vossen, but hence also more superficial in content. It contains neither much theory nor much implementation details.
